State Department Releases Country Reports On Human Rights

On Tuesday, the U.S. State Department released its 2020 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices. According to the Department:

The annual Country Reports ... cover internationally recognized individual, civil, political, and worker rights, as set forth in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international agreements.

However for the most part the country reports cross refer to the Department's International Religious Freedom Reports for discussion of religious freedom issues. The 2020 Report on religious freedom has not yet been released.
